UPDATE: Former DIG Nalaka de Silva who was arrested by CID over VIP assassination allegations have been remanded until 7th November.

The former DIG was presented before the Fort Magistrate tonight (25) itself, following the arrest.


Former DIG Nalaka de Silva has been arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) a short while ago.

This morning (25), former DIG Nalaka de Silva arrived at the CID for the 5th day to record a statement on VIP assassination allegations.

DIG Nalaka de Silva, former Director of the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID), is currently under investigation in connection with an alleged conspiracy to assassinate the President and the former Defense Secretary.

He was previously summoned to the CID on 18th, 19th, 22nd and 23rd October to record statements on the same account and was interrogated by the CID for nearly 33 hours.

Director (Operations) of Anti-Corruption Movement, Namal Kumara, had last month uncovered information of the conspiracy and the alleged conversations that he had with former DIG Nalaka de Silva regarding the matter and other controversial topics.

The CID subsequently commenced investigations regarding the alleged conspiracy and has recorded statements from both Namal Kumara and the former DIG on multiple occasions.
